It's almost funny how bad some breeders are at selling/marketing their reptiles at the shows. They are reptile breeders, not used car salespeople but still, look at other breeders displays, find out what you like and/or don't like about them and try to improve on it. It's not that hard! lol
The eye contact thing is just obvious though... it's amazing how far you can get just by talking to a passer-by... not trying to "hock" your reptiles like a carnie... just chat with them. You both love reptiles... chat about them. Then rope 'em in! Sales 101...
